Baylor was tremendous. 

Local kid Zach Loveday got the courtesy minute for Baylor at the end snd got himself a block. Know it all dads around the area laughed at him for going to Baylor knowing he wasn’t good enough for a lot of playing time....he has the last laugh for sure.

Dude is 7'0".....I think he will be fine - wherever he is at. Looking at his bio quickly, he seems legit too.

Started my RPT (reverse pyramid training) yesterday.

Liked my 2 1/2 weeks of Shaun T's Insanity but I miss lifting too much and I'd much rather lift weights for 45 minutes than do cardio for 45 minutes. My plan will be to try to get 1-2 "lighter" cardio sessions in a week - but in all honesty, a walk with the dog may be my cardio.

I will be deadlifting, bench pressing, and back squatting. Then will sprinkle in some chins, dips, rows, and overhead pressing.

It had been a while since I lifted heavy. Last night's 275x4 opening deadlift set felt HEAVY lol. I hope to adjust rather quickly within my first 3-4 weeks.

By summer's end I should be deadlifting up over 330 again and hoping my squat is right around there too for 3-4 reps. I am terrible at bench pressing, and have always struggled with that but hoping I can put up some decent weight over these next 4 months or so.

Edit: Will also be going back to my 16/8 intermittent fasting.

So I need: Oregon State, USC, Baylor, Bama and Creighton to keep winning. Seems easy enough. 

EDIT: Oh, and and LSU win would help.

And I need all those teams to lose lol.

I’m pretty sure I have no shot, but hey, I can root against teams now

Thankful for some Wisconsin and Villanova wins. Trice and Moore gave me some hope. Hoping for a Jalen Suggs and Franz Wagner show today!

Also, my two guys last night had to have been the worst performance ever for a First Four night.

Two guys combined for 4 points. Averaged nearly 31 combined....

I wasn't expecting Hemphill to go off coming back from injury but was hoping he could get 8-10. And then Etienne from Wichita St, averages 17 a game - scores 1 freaking point. 1 point.

As we enter the 11th round, looks like we should make it through 12 before the tip tomorrow. Was nice to have an extra day.

Yeah, would've been a frantic morning today trying to get another 2 whole rounds done before noon. But nonetheless, it looks like we will likely have it done by tonight or early morning tomorrow. (Depending on Terry lol)

The draft list for Inside the Five looks good, that's definitely on the list of places to consider. Looks like we'd drive by Black Frog, which has good reviews, if we took that route.

Never physically been there, but have heard good things and have had some of their stuff.

I need suggestions. I will likely be taking this route on Sunday afternoon. What are the best breweries nearby enough to any of the routes that it would be worth a small detour to get to? I'm fine going 10-15 minutes off course if it's a good enough brewery.

If you wanted to take 75, swing by Inside The Five brewery in Perrysburg. Just opened up this location. Original is in Sylvania. 

Toledo has Maumee Bay Brewing is in Toledo and that’s a little further, but top notch as well.
